    ...they can't make packaging for action figures that allows them to be removed and placed back inside the package for safe keeping without all forms of resin, glue, and a good sharp edge.

    . . .it's a pretty enormous waste of money so people aren't given to doing it with any frequency.

    (Advancing space exploration isn't a waste of money. That said...)

    But they can't do this other thing which actually has no engineering solution.

    At first I thought the design looked like a dog food bowl, but the idea is ingenious. I might have to get either the Obol or the EZ Crunch Bowl as some point in the future. I always rush through eating cereal simply because I'm trying to avert the sogginess.

    But this is kinda besides the point. What I actually meant to say:

    They can put a man on the moon, but they can't stabilise the molecular structure of breakfast cereal to prevent them from getting too soggy in the milk.
